Simulated annealing and related Monte Carlo-type optimization algorithms are used to apply statistical physics concepts, in particular ideas from the statistical mechanics of spin glasses, to find optimal configurations for combinatorial optimization problems. There are formal proofs showing that these algorithms converge asymptotically (i.e.—possibly—for infinitely long simulation times) to a ...
